    June 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on June 1, 2017 by in Blog

    This month we have two blocks to get in thirteen for the year and not lap over into January.  One is a familiar flower and the other is not, but it starts with S.  I just loved the simplistic look of it.  I decided to use blue, rather than lavender for my flowers.  It may […]

    Cat got the Canary

    Posted on May 26, 2017 by in Blog

    What????  Just a quick note to let you know what I have been up to this month, besides appliquéing.  Completed some MENDING!!  What a concept for a quilter and worked on the following project too, which only took a couple hours.  This was more to my liking. I really enjoy Laurel Burch designs, especially her […]

    May 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on May 1, 2017 by in Blog

    The obvious flower choice for this month would have been the Rose, but as I was researching other flowers that begin with R, I came across this one.  Most of us probably call it Hibiscus, but it is also known as Rose of Sharon.  Since this is also the name of a popular quilt appliqué […]

    April 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on April 1, 2017 by in Blog

    I had a tough time deciding what I was going to do for Q since there are very few choices.  At first I was thinking of Quercus for oak, but the flower would be very hard to appliqué, yes there are oak flowers; all pollen and not much more.  So, Quince, it is! As I design […]

    March 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on March 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Glad that I got this month’s block done early, almost done with April’s block! On top of the fact that the pansy flower is perfect for the letter “P”, it is perfect for this month, because with Spring here pansies are popping up in gardens everywhere, and now in quilts.  Besides they are happy flowers, they […]

    February 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on February 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Took this picture a couple of years ago in Barstow CA, which is the inspiration of this month’s flower.  This poisonous, but lovely flowering bush is very common here in Southern California.  As a small child, I remember my mother telling me to not pick the flowers, even though they were pretty because touching the plant […]

    January 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on January 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Where has the year gone!  I was talking to a friend about this the other day.  Time does not go any faster, it is just our perception of it.  As usual, Mary H. is keeping up with me.  If you have made only one or a few of the blocks, please send pictures.  We would all […]

    My Road to Tehachapi

    Posted on September 15, 2016 by in Blog

    I have never been involved in an online challenge, although I have taken part in quilt guild challenges.  When Marian of Seams To Be Sew first asked me, this theme popped into my head immediately. The free download of My Road to Tehachapi, (12″x 40″), is available until the end of October 2016.  Click on the picture […]
